Forum: GratefulDead Subject: TDIH 09-09-1993 Richfield Coliseum - Morning Dew

Fall 1993 was perhaps Garcia's last consistent run playing at a high level...nuggets abound from August and September 93 and the Garcia Band shows from November 1993 are quite strong...

Anyhew, the first set is hit and miss, but the second set picks it up with a percussion led Victim, Crazy Fingers is good and St. of Circumstance features a some nice Garcia guitar work on the closing jam...this leads to a very strong Terrapin Station...out of drums > space a tight Last Time emerges...in the closing trails of Last Time, Garcia winds up Morning Dew, my vote for the best version of the Welnick era and one of the best versions of this tune period. This versions is tight and powerful, the arrangement has a unique quality to it, the band is definitely weaving the x factor into the fabric of this tune...Phil throws in a thunder lick and Garcia is perfectly in the moment throughout...this version does not build for 13 minutes like other versions, instead the moment leads the band to climax the song at the perfect moment and ride the ending coda like a huge wave....5 tom hits by Mickey settle it and the set is over....this copy includes the audience's reaction and they cheer all the way up to the encore...

highly recommended...

and yes, the 06-15-93 version is great and it's longer but it doesn't quite the magic that this one does (I attended both shows)...03-27-1994 is also good...

enjoy!

thanks for that! i was pleasantly surprised by that morning dew. vince sounds great on piano and the whole band has very complimentary interplay. thoughtful yet passionate. nice.

i am not a fan of jerry's tone in these later days but it seems to work alright, especially his overdriven solos are just right.

The sbd to that is amazing. I've lived near the area of Richfield my entire life , and never missed a chance to see the boys when they played there (hundreds of other acts there as well) The sound in there was horrible, lol(imho) But this was sweet to listen to , brought back very fond memories, The Buckeye Lake show from 93 has one of the sweetest Lazy River Road's I've ever heard . Thanx for your recomendation on this , was very nice to revist this show.

almost twice as much d/s as music after inc encore. 7 tunes and barely 45m first set. and the dew killed?

Thanks Strat, I'll check this out based on your recommendation. Does this Dew suffer at all from the new guitar sound that Jerry introduced months earlier? I always thought that new guitar lost some of the "umpth" that the big boy.

I find that they are all dialed it to a good sound, at least for the Dew, Garcia leaves his guitar alone and delivers a nice tone, when he's playing with more gaina nd distortion, he gets a nice "moaning" effect on the long notes...I do know what you mean, and for me it was all about the song choice, I preferred the fat tone associated with the Tiger or Rosebud over Lightning Bolt...

a really good dew. Starts off a little slow and choppy but gradually picks up a lot of steam. You can actually hear Vince in the mix which is shocking. Just as the band is really cooking Jer pulls the rip cord and ends the tune. The sound quality on this recording is very good. I'm not a big fan of the Fall/winter sound and playing of 1993 but this was a good selection.
